Applegate Soils got their new logo design by running a design contest:
Create a logo for our Grow Shop using the beauty of the wilderness.
Check out Applegate Soils's Logo design contest…
We sell a full line of organic soils, amendments, and fertilizers to local medicinal cannabis growers. Our customers are typically male, work with their hands, and enjoy living in the wilderness of Southern Oregon. We are a "Grow Shop" with a focus on outdoor organics. Our customers want large yields and big plants.
Logo types to explore
*PLEASE, NO FARM IMAGERY.* A big bonus to any designs that convey an edgy, counter-culture vibe. There needs to be a nod to what our customers want: large yields on their medical cannabis plants. But there should be minimal cannabis imagery. Think over-sized fruits & vegetables, ripe growth, and lush vegetation! Even tropical! Take advantage of horizontal space in your designs. We're definitely fans of more width than height. Be sure to get a feel for the sample logos. Not so much the layout necessarily, but the vegetation and vibe. Design Ideas: Oversized fruits/veggies; Tomatoes being the cliche growshop/hydroshop fruit. Cliche isn't bad! Don't get carried away with too much variety! Tropical foliage and strange flowers. A bit exotic and surreal! Flowers, vegetables, fruits, and vegetation, all still alive and growing. Ripe and not yet picked. Edgy, avant-garde, lettering. Legibility is crucial. Wilderness: Forests, meadows, wetlands, rivers, and lakes. Logo Qualities: Abuuuunndanccce, BIG yields, ~MOnSTeR CRopS~ Edgy, Counter-Culture Untamed Wilderness, Gardening, Nature Applegate, Southern Oregon Attached Images: Partner company's logo and product images. Sketch of some lettering. A couple of garden murals. Try to incorporate some of this imagery! A reference for a possible layout. Notice the horizontal space usage. Iconic to The Area: The Siskiyou Mountains (Which is the starting point of) The Applegate River (Which flows into) Applegate Lake (Which is surrounded by) The Siskiyou National Forest Our logo should be able to share space on brochures, products, and websites with our partner company The Good Earth Organics. Design style elements may be similar but not copied. We will consider purchasing additional work after the contest.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Logo design starts at $299.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their logo design.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.

And then… they selected 2 winners!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
